Chicken Thief Caught, 1920

From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), July 15, 1920, page 4:

Chicken Thief Caught.
A chicken thief which had been causing considerable worry in Highland View, was captured Wednesday night, in J. T. Linville’s chicken house, but not until the marauder had killed over 100 of Mr. Linville’s chickens.
The thief was of the four legged variety, black with white spots, known as a civit cat.

Perhaps some of the farmers who have been losing chickens might be able to secure a trap large enough to catch the two legged kind of thicken thieves if they inquire just what kind of a trap Mr. Linville used.
